The Price of Gas – A New Point of View

6 Apr

My sister sent this to me via email.  I’m giving it to you, dear Internet, ‘cuz I know how unhappy we all are about the rising cost of gasoline.  This will give us all a new perspective:

Think a gallon of gas is expensive?

This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.

Lipton Ice Tea:  16 oz @ $1.19 → $9.52 per gallon

Ocean Spray: 16 oz @ $1.25 → $10.00 per gallon

Gatorade:  20 oz @ $1.59 → $10.17 per gallon

Diet Snapple: 16 oz @ $1.29 → $10.32 per gallon

Whiteout: 7 oz @ $1.39 → $25.42 per gallon

Brake Fluid:  12 oz@ $3.15 → $33.60 per gallon

Scope: 1.5 oz @ $0.99 → $84.48 per gallon

Pepto Bismol: 4 oz @ $3.85 → $123.20 per gallon

Vick’s Nyquil:  6 oz @ $8.35 → $178.13 per gallon

And this is a REAL KICKER…

Evian Water:  9 oz @ $1.49→$21.19 per gallon!

$21.19 per gallon for WATER and buyers don’t even know where it comes from (ever noticed that Evian spelled backwards is Naive?)

Have you ever wondered why printers are so cheap?  Because they have you hooked for the ink.  Someone calculated the cost of the ink at (you won’t believe it, but it is true):

$5,200 per gallon!!

So, the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on water, Scope, Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!

Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump.

See, Internet readers, I’m always trying to make your life happier.  Mwah!

And thanks, Lil Kit!
